Safeguarding Information

Welcome to the lr6 safeguarding page

Here you will be able to find links to our key Safeguarding policies and guidance, including links to other useful sources of information and advice regarding some of the key issues facing children and young people. 

At the bottom of the page you can find contact details of the school's Safeguarding team to whom we encourage students, parents or members of the public to report any concerns immediately. 

We operate robust safeguarding policies and procedures which includes working closely with parents/carers and a range of organisations and professionals to ensure the young people who attend the school are kept safe and supported appropriately during difficult circumstances. 

We are fully committed to the safeguarding of students and to provide them with a safe and secure environment. Any action taken  by the safeguarding team is done with reference to statutory guidance, professional advice and will always be in the best interests of the child. 

Guidance and advice

Please click here to read our Child Protection & Safeguarding policy. Use the links below to take you to key safeguarding documents which inform our policy and practice. As a school we are developing key 'Supporting Students' policies, these relate to specific issues that we needed particularly protocols and guidance around. 

Personal Development and safeguarding

Part of our safeguarding commitment also relates to educating our students about key issues which potentially pose a risk to children and young people. This is primarily done through our Friday morning Personal Development curriculum, but also through externally delivered workshops and outside speakers. The main aim of all these sessions is to ensure students are able to take care of themselves, and if confronted with an issue, are aware and confident of who can support them and where to go to access that support.
